It is the fashion nowadays to decry the clergy, I know, but we hear things, we know a side of human character which is a sealed book to the outside world. ‘Well,’ said Joyce, ‘it seems to me we are a pretty representative gathering. How would it be if we formed a Club?

I am afraid my little problem will seem rather tame to you all,’ he said apologetically, ‘after the sensational stories we have been hearing.

It isn’t terribly legal, is it?’ asked Joyce Lemprière. I mean points of law and lots of Barnaby v Skinner in the year 1881, and things like that. Mr Petherick beamed appreciatively at her over his eyeglasses. No, no, my dear young lady

Часто встречающиеся слова и выражения. Agatha Christie was born in Torquay in 1890 and became, quite simply, the best-selling novelist in history. Her first novel, The Mysterious Affair at Styles, written towards the end of the First World War, introduced us to Hercule Poirot, who was to become the most popular detective in crime fiction since Sherlock Holmes. She is the author of 80 crime novels and short story collections, 19 plays, and six novels under the name of Mary Westmacott.

On Tuesday evening a group gathers at Miss Marple's house and the conversations turns to unsolved crimes: the case of the disappearing bloodstains; the thief who committed his crime twice over; the strange case of the invisible will; and the death-bed message that red "heap of fish".
Except for the last story, the format for each story is the same: a small group of people entertain themselves, each time they meet, by having one of them tell a mystery and then the others try to solve it before hearing the solution. Unexpectedly, the elderly Miss Marple - better known for her knitting - manages to solve every one.

1. Retired Scotland Yard Commissioner, Sir Henry, tells of three who sat down to sup: two became ill - the third died.
2. An elderly parish clergyman tells of the death of a woman dressed as a Goddess.
3. Miss Marple's nephew tells of a man who may have known too much about the missing gold.
4. An artist tells of a scenic fishing village - perfect for painting and for murder.
5. A lawyer tells of a rich man who - just before he dies - makes a new will, and now, the new will is missing.
6. Miss Marple tells of the time when nearly everyone thought her niece Maple had murdered her husband.

7. Col. Bantry tells of the mysterious death of Mrs. Pritchard; curiously, the flowers in her room predicted it.
8. A doctor tells of the drowning of an English woman.
9. Sir Henry tells a story of former Secret Service agent who had fallen down the stairs.
10. Jane Marple tells of Mrs. Sanders being found face down; a sand-filled stocking lay nearby.
11. Mrs. Bantry tells of a vivacious girl who dies after supping on a meal featuring duck.
12. An actress tells a hazy story ... but it was clear to Miss Marple.

13. Miss Marple hands Sir Henry a note with the unlikely name of the murderer; now he is got to prove it.

Overall: the stories range from 3 to 5. Note: alternate title: "The Tuesday Club Murders."
A collection of Miss Marple stories where people discuss mysterious events that they have experienced and let the gathering try to solve them. Of course Miss Marple surprises every one every time. That is not a spoiler. I can't get enough Agatha Christie.
This is one of my favorite Agatha Christie books. Miss Marple's ability to understand human nature and deduce the culprit of the crime in these thirteen stories is a marvel to her family and friends. A very easy and pleasant reading experience.
Starting with book as a collection of stories I kind of imagined to be kind of the novel The Big Four. But, it isn't. Miss Marple image as a simple lady with a penetrating mind is a treat to read. Plots are great and thought provoking if you are taking breaks during reads. Five stars well deserved.
Much of the language is not used today and I needed the Kindle dictionary often. Agatha Christie has some good stories and will keep the reader guessing most of the time. This type of writing will appeal to older readers. Younger readers who like James Patterson will be turned off by the slower pace of these stories.
Love Agatha! This book is great for a busy mom who loves to read but doesn't have the time to read for long periods of time. Book is written in short stories told amount a group. One tells a mystery, then another so you can stop between stories. Love it...????
The book arrived as described and on time. I was pleased.
Fabulous early Marple, full of archetypes but surprises too. Marple is superb.
